Emotional Energy crisis !!

I had never known what is called emotional energy? Until I myself faced the lack of it. Since the past few days I have been feeling drained – I guessed that I was low on what is called emotional energy; tried looking up the net for it . . . . . and found that it was exactly what I had been facing
“Call it a personal energy crisis. On the surface, your life seems full enough—maybe even too full—yet you're running on empty. You feel stretched thin, stressed-out, drained”

I don’t know what has triggered this. I have always been a pretty responsible person, rather I pull responsibilities to myself (am a fool in that sense if you may say so). Discussing issues (or arguing if you want to call it that) is a sport to me – It doesn’t drain me but energizes me further. I hardly give up before the person in front of me either walks away or is convinced of my side. That might not be good as such .. but the point is, I have a large storehouse of energy latent. There have been days when I don’t sleep for 48 hours in continuously and yet can survive. On the very first day of my summer internship I had spent only 8 hours out of past 48 sleeping . . . and yet I ran for the next whole week . . . without trouble
But the past 3 days have been radically different. I am sleeping . . .much more than I usually do, and yet when I wake up I feel drained … I feel heavy during evenings which otherwise are my most active times . . . I have been delegating my usual responsibilities to others – leave alone taking up new ones. And discussions? I don’t know whether others have noticed but I am shying away from getting involved, leave alone discussing. . . non-committal about everything
Is this a change settling in me . . or is it a temporary phase . . God !! whatever it is .. why at this critical moment ? with exams lined up in the next week and following exams is MastishK . . can I afford to continue like this ? I am not even feeling like attending classes . . not that I need to.. I have enough attendance but the problem is energy . . even if I stay in the room I don’t do anything . .
I need an emotional booster .. don’t even know what it means but I need it . . . probably getting back to studies and developing some confidence might help . . . let me hope that my next post will be in “good health”. Amen!

How will travel industry transform post-Covid

Unlike philosophers, journalists and teenagers, the world of entrepreneurship does not permit the luxury of gazing into a crystal ball to predict the future. An entrepreneur’s world is instead made of MVPs (Minimum Viable Product), A/B Tests, launching products, features or services and gauging / measuring their reception in the market to arrive at verifiable truths which can drive the business forward. Which is why I have never written about my musings or hypothesis about travel industry – we usually either seek customer feedback or launch an MVPised version and gather market feedback. However, with Covid-19 travel bans across the globe, the industry is currently stuck – while a lot of industry reports and journalistic conjectures are out, there’s no definitive answer to the way forward. Besides there is no way to test your hypothesis since even the traveller does not know what they will do when skies open. So, I decided to don my blogger hat and take the luxury of crystal gazing

Experienced vs. Freshers – an MBA perspective

Shubham and me compiled and created an article during our first year of MBA. It was never published, nevertheless MBA aspirants will find it very useful. Publishing it online for the same purpose. However, Shubham and myself claim a copyright on the text .... and of course very many thanks to all our freinds whose views have helped us compile the article. Experienced vs. Freshers – an MBA perspective By Nikhil Kulkarni, KPMG Shubham Choudhury, Infosys PGDIM- X, NITIE, Mumbai Ashita Mittal was placed during her final year in engineering college with a leading software firm. But she never wanted to be another brick in the wall. She wanted to differentiate herself from other graduates who start their career at the lowest rung of organizational hierarchy. MBA was a natural choice for her. On the other side is Shailesh Dhawla, who worked as a software engineer with a leading software consultancy firm for 3 years. He started his job with some ends in mind, like working with a known c

Ekla Chalo re

Watched "Bose- The forgotten Hero" on Saturday. Gem of a movie and probably the best of Shyam Benegal. Subhash Chandra Bose has always been an inspiring character in the history for the youth. This post however is not about the movie, its about the lead song 'Tanha Rahee' which is based on the poem 'Ekla Chalo Re' by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. I had pasted the English translation of this poem on my blog earlier. However, yesterday I found the original bengali text of the poem and found that the meaning in the above translation was not exact. So I have endeavourer (with the help of Shubham ) to re-translate it into English and Hindi by myself. Here is the output of my work: Bengali Jodi Tor Dak Soone Keu Na Asse Tobe Ekla Chalo re Ekla Chalo Ekla Chalo Ekla Chalore Jodi Keu Katha Na Kai Ore Ore O Abhaga Jodi Sabai Thake Mukh Firae Sabai Kare Bhay Tabe Paran Khule O Tui Mukh Fute Tor Maner
